Just Like the Real Thing: Loveplugs Guide to Anal Dildos

Butt and anal dildos

In the quest for anal pleasure, we often try many different kinds of sex toy. But no matter how many features, designs, shapes and sizes are on offer, sometimes all you really want is some old fashioned penetration.

When this time comes, its time for the anal dildo.

Anal Dildo? Isn’t That Just a Dildo?

Surely there can’t be much difference between a dildo and an anal dildo? They’re just long rods for penetration, right?

Well this is mostly true, but there’s one key difference that you should always be looking for: the base!

While technically you could use any dildo as an anal dildo, the butt has a habit of sucking things inside. Once inside, it can keep on traveling, potentially making it all the way to your intestines and needing a rather embarrassing trip to the hospital to remove.

That’s why every anal dildo should have some kind of flared base or suction cup to keep it from going fully inside. No exceptions!

Dildos for Anal Types

Just like regular dildos, there’s a massive range of anal dildos to choose from. Which you try will depend on your own preferences, whether you’re playing alone or with a partner, how experienced you are with anal play, and a whole host of other considerations.

So let’s go over some of the types to help you find the right one for your butt.

Beginner/Small Anal Dildo

As the name would imply, these are the perfect anal dildo for those less experienced at putting things in their butts. These are generally, smaller, thinner and smoother than other options, making insertion easy and avoiding putting too much stress on your sensitive anal muscles.

Realistic Anal Dildo

A realistic anal dildo will be one that’s focused on imitating a real penis as much as possible. They usually have a distinctive head, and often include details like veins or testicles. Many of these are also made from materials that closely mimic the feel of skin like silicone or cyberskin, and tend to be around the same size as the average penis so you’ll know what to expect when you use it!

For the closest thing to anal sex without actually having anal sex, you’ll want a realistic anal dildo.

Textured/Ribbed Anal Dildo

A textured or ribbed anal dildo is one that adds some additional feel to the surface of the shaft. These can be ridges, bumps, spots, or even shapes that imitate the penis of fantasy creatures like dragons or aliens.

Textured pink glass dildo

Each part of these dildos is designed to provide extra stimulation when used. As the shaft slides in and out of your body, your sensitive anal nerves will feel the changes in pressure, and be stretched around the different shapes. This can lead to some of the most enjoyable anal penetration sex toys have to offer.

Suction Cup Anal Dildos

While most dildos require you to move the shaft in and out of your body with your hand (or get your partner to do it), suction cup anal dildos take a different approach. Instead of a flared base, these dildos have a suction cup on the bottom which allows you to attach the toy to flat surfaces like floors, walls, tables, or even your bath tub!

Once you’ve chosen the spot for your dildo, you can ride it or thrust on it till you reach climax. This gives you a more realistic experience as your body is moving the same way it would during sex, as well as complete control over how hard the thrusts are, and how deep the toy goes.

Double Anal Dildo

For the experienced anal players, a double anal dildo can provide a completely different experience. Rather than one head and a base, these have two heads. That’s one for you, and one for your partner.

Once you’ve both got your end inserted, you can thrust back and forth against each other’s butts and enjoy both being penetrated at the same time. These are great if you can never decide who’s turn it is!

Inflatable Anal Dildo

Once you get used to a specific toy, it can often leave you wanting more. Sometimes it just doesn’t feel as big as it used to!

Inflatable anal dildos take away this problem, by letting you change your experience each time you use it.

Instead of a solid shaft, these toys are made from flexible material with a hollow core. From the base runs a tube that leads to a pump. Once you’ve inserted the dildo, you can start pumping to increase the size of the toy inside your body.

These dildos are a great choice for more advanced users looking for a challenge, anyone who enjoys anal stretching, or someone simply looking for a little more variety from their anal dildo.

Choosing the Right Anal Dildo For You

Two anal dildos

Beyond simply deciding on different types, there’s a few things you’ll need to consider when buying an anal dildo. These are the same no matter which type you buy.

First is the size. Dildos come in a huge range of sizes, from tiny and thin models, right up to gigantic “monster cocks”. If you’re unsure, then a good place to start is by thinking about the penises you’ve had sex with in the past. Aim for something familiar, and then explore from there.

The other main choice is the materials. Like most sex toys, your main choices will be glass, metal or silicone. Both glass and metal are firmer, and can feel a little cold when you first insert them. Silicone is much softer and feels closer to real skin. All three are non-porous and body safe, making them the ideal choices for a penetrative toy.

Using Your Anal Dildo

Once you’ve chosen the perfect dildo, you’re going to want to use it! This process is largely the same no matter what anal toy you’re using:

  1. Get in the mood – anal insertion is much easier when you’re aroused.
  2. Apply plenty of lube to both the toy and your anus.
  3. Start with a finger to loosen up the muscles.
  4. Slowly insert the toy, taking regular breaks when you feel like you need one.
  5. Once the muscles are relaxed and open, enjoy yourself!

It’s Anal Penetration Time!

If you’re looking for the most realistic kind of anal toy you can buy, then you can’t go wrong with an anal dildo. Start shopping now and make your next session of anal play your most fun ever.
